After her husband retired in 2003, they spent many years traveling the world together. Traveling was something she loved most, with her most recent trip being to Asia in the fall 2019. She joined the Red Hat Society and was an active member of the Gilded Red Roses in which she attended numerous events and lunches, making lots of friends along the way. She was also an active member of the Canadian Women’s Club of Los Angeles. Cheri has always been active and outgoing with a very strong sense of direction. She was very headstrong, steadfast and never wavered in her opinions. On the other hand, she was also very loving, caring and generous in every sense. She would go out of her way to help you if ever need be. She was a firm believer in holiday traditions and was always trying to plan a date for the family to get together. She even continued to buy the kids Easter baskets with chocolate bunnies every year even though they were in there 20’s and far from being little kids. In her eyes they were always kids. Cheri was a loving wife to Jerry, Mother to David and Daniel and Grandmother to Matthew, Michelle, Stephanie, Catherine, and Christopher.
